Agreed.  Please don't reflow text in a format conversion patch, it makes
it very difficult to figure out which changes were to accomodate rst.

If you want to reflow text (because of line length etc.) please do it as
a second patch.  I'd rather break the 80 column rule for a single commit
if it makes reviewing easy on the eyes.

Seconded.  Thank you for sending v5 as a separate patch, though. :)
